Hello to All,

The gate to the parking lot was closed. Randy & I gained access by coming along the road in front of the Museum.  Gary & Steve parked near the golf shack and walked through Bobolink Meadow. The group came together on the walk around the North Lagoon.

Randy was our complier. With his keen hearing and concentration, our species count notched up.

We found four Wooly Bears.  As winter forecasters, their black and orange pattern predicts a mild winter.

Hello to All,

It was a pleasant Walk this morning, if you remembered to wear layered clothing, which is something all birders quickly learn to do.

We saw a 16 inch Garden Snake on the path in Bobolink Meadow. A child discovered it moving slowly.  Its tongue is red. Erin picked it up very gently and moved it to the grassy area next to the path. 

A late Monarch Butterfly was in the Meadow. We felt sorry that it was late in migration and wished it well on its journey.

Hello to All,

The seasons are changing. Although this is migration season, there were a paltry number of birds to be seen or heard on our slow walk. All was quiet.  Although the wind was strong, there were plenty of bugs in the air.

Can’t blame it on the solo American Kestrel, who was busy priming its flight feathers, before flying off in a southerly direction.

The two Great Egrets were kind enough to fly in from the west and stay the morning around the East Lagoon.
